First off, we’re excited to welcome back to Twitter Dr. Eugene Gu, the Resistance darling who successfully sued the president to unblock him on Twitter. (He still has us blocked, though.)
When we last checked in with Gu, he had decided to take a break from Twitter after posting an extremely long and sexually explicit thread in which he explained that he had launched a second Twitter account under the name Mary Laury not to stalk and emotionally manipulate an ex-girlfriend but just to create a handy alibi. (Read about that hot mess here if you missed it.)
But now he’s back and ready to mix it up again, this time responding to this tweet from President Trump:
Looking back on history, who was treated worse, Alfonse Capone, legendary mob boss, killer and “Public Enemy Number One,” or Paul Manafort, political operative & Reagan/Dole darling, now serving solitary confinement – although convicted of nothing? Where is the Russian Collusion?

Forget Manafort — Gu thinks the contest is between Al Capone and Trump, and it’s not even close.
Paul Manafort and the Trump administration robbed and killed far more people than Al Capone ever did.

We told you were we excited Laury — um, Gu — is back online.
Which one of your personalities tweeted this? https://t.co/RvuDXQ3mIm

Hey @Jack … isn’t it kind of weird to allow Gu to keep his blue check after pretending to be other people on your platform for really sketchy reasons? Remember that “conversational health” talk we had?

Does attention whoring pay more or less than being a surgeon? https://t.co/qpwGHGoz2Y

A disconnect from reality that is sad to watch. https://t.co/naTa762W4Z

This tweet is ludicrous.

And it's this type of rhetoric that keeps people from taking you seriously about anything
— Michael (@brutalion68) August 2, 2018
Good grief. You should try and keep your lies somewhat believable.

Expand on your accusation….who did Manafort and Trump kill?

Wouldn't it be great if you named just one? 🤔
